Default suggestions for wood and sizes for Stikadet bash

I've drawn a fuselage for a bash of a Sig Kadet tail empenage and a Balsa USA Stick 40 wing. I've got em so I'm going to use em.
I would like to hear from real builders (does not include myself) what size and type of wood should be used. I've drawn it with balsa side skins and plywood doublers over the wing and plywood formers and firewall. It'll be a low wing tail dragger, less than 6lbs, the wing will have an added center section making it 63" with a 48" fuselage, 32 or 46 size brushless motor with 4 or 5 cell battery. I'll also need help choosing the landing gear and tail wheel type- tied to rudder or with it's own control linkage?
